Award-winning theatre ensemble The Faction returns to Wilton’s Music Hall following successful runs of The Talented Mr. Ripley and A Midsummer Night’s Dream with a series of thrilling solo shows.
Medea / Ex-Duchess / Duende brings together the most daring names from world literature with exciting emerging writers. Emily Juniper’s Off West End nominated take on Euripides’ Medea tells the classic tale whilst giving voice to Medea’s wedding dress, while South African playwright Jessica Siân combines Robert Browning’s poem My Last Duchess with the contemporary resonances of the Oscar Pistorius-Reeva Steenkamp murder trial.
The cast includes Anna-Maria Nabirye (Macbeth, National Theatre; They Drink It In The Congo, Almeida) and Amelia Donkor (The Taming of the Shrew, Royal Shakespeare Company; What Shadows, Birmingham Rep) directed by The Faction’s Artistic Director Rachel Valentine Smith.
Running time: 90 minutes, no interval
